"Mensa was founded in England in 1946 by Roland Berrill, a barrister, and Dr. Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer. They had the idea of forming a society for bright people, the only qualification for membership of which was a high IQ."

I have met (or virtually got 'connected' to) a whole lot of Mensa Members.
Somehow, most of them were really proud of the fact they were member and every opportunity they had, they would 'brag' about it.
"Well of course, but since I am a Mensa Member, I think I have a right to say...' etc.

I think the qualification for membership of that society isn't mostly high IQ - but - 'High IQ and having a real hard time adapting to this world'.

Every single (Dutch)Mensa Member I know of shows very poor emotional intelligence, inability to connect to the hoipolloi, is very frustrated and last but not least... the anger... so much hostility.

Typical eh?
So smart... yet... so "stupid".

Don't men have to be tested twice...one for each brain?



That is what women just don't get about men! 1 brain / 2 heads = 1/2 brain allocated to each...

Wow, and to think i was trying twice as hard to please both, when i only needed to expend half that effort! Rob, you are just too quick for me! laf*


Not wonder it gets confusing for us. If you are trying twice as hard to compensate, then in reality, you really going 4x as fast. Maybe women aren't as flighty as we think, but merely traveling at supersonic speed! ROFLMAO

I've taken a few IQ tests before... what IQ do you need for mensa?

Personally i dont think i would join even if for some glitch in the system i qualified, i think IQ doesnt quite work, for reasons already mentioned... People can be amazingly smart, in a certain field, or someone could be OK in lots of fields, who is smarter??? See its to much of a subjective thing, on the IQ tests.
You have to be smart at what they ask you... thats all. You could be the dumbest person in the world at other topics.

I took one of Mensa's online tests and got the Mensa puzzlebook at home too.
They said I qualify. I never went further to do the actual test that earns you a card.
My parents had our IQs tested.


Did they give them back when they finished testing? LOL, just teasing you. The tests over on Tickle are pretty fun. Of course I am not sure if they have been the same since KatieGrl scored her high marks! Don't you just hate those curve busters. :o) And I wonder what ever became of that InternationalMan? He also did very well on it. Perhaps he found his intelligent athiest girl and rode into the sunset.


So WhisperO, the Mensa pretest online said you would qualify? You must be one of those curve busters too... They were a bit less optimistic with me, I think they said "a good chance of passing the test". :o)

Devo,

If you are gonna have them lining up, you will have to see if you can find volunteers for the "Cup Measurement Experiment" that was started around Christmas time. I don't remember if Hondo or SlowMotion had the safety manual with revisions last... It is very exciting research work but sometimes dangerous.

Hey Rob,
It is on MENSA's site, where you race the clock. I did this a couple of years ago.
I know about those on Tickle. hehehe. For interest sake, what Dog are you? I can't remember what I am. They are fun and funny. Then there was a site that tells you what hemisphere of your brain you use.
You definitely are a candidate for them.
The MENSA book is fun, especially when you pass them to people to solve the problems. One guy interested in me never contacted me again ......

Ohhh and please never ever use the word "loose" and woman in the same sentence, ewwww. That is every mans nightmare! lmao.

You are way too perceptive!
I weallyweallyweally thought I could secretly check out yr package without getting caught!
Guess my complete stunned look kinda gave me away eh?
Mouth dropped open and couldnt stop looking.
I still do blame you tho, you shouldn't wiggle your package around that openly and for us all to see!

;-)

Ps: Hey! I did NOT say I was a Mensa anywhere, since I'm not!


Aimee, I took your Mensa comment out of context as well. My apologies.

Additionally you are more than welcome to check out my package anytime you like. lol.
